Stop being a bitch, the only reason they are pushing it is because a global event that has cost a lot of money and effort. It has drummed up a lot of business and will continue to do so. My company alone has had an employment boost in the thousands as an official provider.
Im not interested in the sport personally but I do hope it is a success for everyone involved.
I'm bored of all the ceremony and the countdown and that, but the actual event I love. The Olympics is a special event. I look forward to the first events when I'll watch and enjoy athletes doing what they've trained years for.
I think this year could be a good british summer. Euros (and I hate football) Olympics (I never watched it in the past ) ....and the Queens thingy.
I don't understand why people have to be so down on everything all the time. People moaning about how the Olympics might go before they've even started. The world will continue to see LONDON 2012 plastered everywhere, and they will continue to not give a shit, just like if it was in any other country.
I do take issue will the BBC thinking the entire country IS London though.This games havn't been labelled Britain 2012 for a reason. They only care about london and the economics surrounding it.
The Euros will be a good watch, and I dont even like football but I always like the big tournaments.
As for the Queen. It's great shes not dead yet ,so it's only right we have an extra day off (even though I don't get anything extra because it's on a tuesday) Why does she look so miserable also? Maybe she doesn't like the Olympics.
Just get in the spirit of it all and stop trying to be cool jumping on the backlash wagon.
Olympics is overrated It's a cash sink one of the biggest pr stunts a politician can have. Didn't watch it last time won't watch it now. I'll probably playing games or doing something far more interest.
